D-tour App- Explore Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature


Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature has teamed up with the University of Otago’s Department of English and Linguistics to create dtour, an app that links remarkable writers and their stories to remarkable sites in Dunedin and the Otago region, with many more to follow.

These literary locations reflect the city’s colourful cultural history and showcase its signature built heritage and natural environment. The resource is packed with local colour and flavour, featuring original scripts for each entry, composed by outstanding creative writers and voiced-over by Otago alumna and writer Sue Wootton and media personality Dougal Stevenson.

dtour is available for Apple iOS devices as a free download from the AppStore and for Android devices as a free download from Google Play.
